THE AGONY SCENE premiere new song “The Submissive”

THE AGONY SCENE have unveiled the second single from their new album Tormentor, out July 20 via Outerloop Records/Cooking Vinyl.

Check out ‘The Submissive’ here:

 

 

“The song is about the abuse of power and trust,” the band said. “More specifically, authority figures preying on naivety and using fear as a means to control and manipulate.”

The album is available for pre-order here

 

 

Tormentor is the band’s first album since 2007’s Get Damned (Century Media), which was preceded by 2005’s The Darkest Red (Roadrunner) and 2003’s self-titled release (Solid State).

“The Agony Scene, was the gateway band in the era of aggressive dark metalcore, paving the way for a new generation of metal fans (including myself),” said Outerloop president Shan Dan Horan. “It’s impossible for me to have a conversation with a metal artist without them mentioning The Agony Scene as an influence. That being said, I’m extremely excited to be a part of their most aggressive album to date.”

 

THE AGONY SCENE will appear on the annual Summer Slaughter Tour with Between the Buried and Me, Born of Osiris, Veil of Maya, and more.
